Sean Penn In Venezuela For The Second Time

| Filed under: PolitikSean Penn

the-original.jpg

Most of the time we really like it when celebrities get politically involved, regardless of their views.

But, sometimes, it makes us cringe!

Sean Penn was recently in Venezuela for his second visit hosted by Tyrant President Hugo Chavez as a freelance journalist. The pair rode in an open jeep flanked by adoring fans as they went to visit a natural gas pipeline on Sunday.

Penn, who has strongly opposed Bush's policies, praises Chavez as a man who works toward the good of his people.

In turn, Chavez has praised Penn's outspokenness.

Although the Venezuelan President has hosted visits from other celebrities, such as Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey, and Naomi Campbell, critics say that Sean Penn is really just being used by Chavez for political gain, as Chavez's dedication to his promises has been questionable at best, implementing a system riddled with crime and corruption and infinite re-election.

    LettyB, ain't that funny?



  3. 3

    Too bad Penn didn't fall out of the open jeep and get ran over by it.

    My friends as we move closer to Election Day please remember a vote for Hussein Obama equals big trauma. We cannot turn over the controls of this country to a person with 146 days experience in Congress and someone who punishes success with higher taxes. Vote McCain/Palin and vote yes on Prop 8 in California.

    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS HAS TO DO WITH!

    He should be tried for treason. Jackass.

    Sean Penn is the biggest idiot in Hollywood. Chavez is an evil dictator and funds terrorists. I can't stand Penn and other Hollywood sheep.



  12. 12

    Sean Penn is cuckoo. That's why he loves Chavez, cause he's cuckoo too!



  13. 13

    SYAY THERE FUCKTARD!



  14. 14

    Please God,
    Let this asshole stay there this time!! He and Chavez deserve one another!!!



  15. 15

    douche.



  16. 16

    Perhaps Sean Penn would be best served by moving to Venezuela and becoming a citizen of the country. He could pursue his acting career down there, once he mastered the language. However, he might find that Hugo Chavez is not as broadminded as he appears to be and clamp down on the tirades about the current government in power. Sean Penn has become a loose cannon who should THINK before he speaks/acts out.



  17. 17

    chavez is insane.
    they make a lovely couple.



  18. 18

    THOSE GUYS ARE FAGS!

    Re: njpaul0129

    This is someone who is trying to pretend that Barack Obama is a terrorist….so juvenile - he can't help it what his second name is. Obama would make a wonderful President, not like doddering old man McCain who appears to be stumbling and erratic or his assclown sidekick Sarah Palin who you sure don't want anywhere near the White House.

    Re: LettyB – You know he did Letty!! You tore that ass up so bad all he can do is post the same thing over and over and over because you fucked any and all original thoughts out of his head.



  21. 21

    BOO!



  22. 22

    Penn used to exhibit intelligence but now he reallllly makes me wonder if he isn't a schmuck after all. Is he goose stepping with Chavez?



  23. 23

    Re: Melissa is always right – YOU KNOW IT GIRL!



  24. 24

    Re: njpaul0129

    You are talking out of your ass…….Obama is the far better candidate and the American people are too smart to fall for the hate campaign launched against him by the ever erratic Republicans.

    Another reason why people should stop fucking listening to Hollywood liberals.



  26. 26

    Sean just loves the attention he gets when he does this. Apparently he's concerned about being an "official" member of the Hollywood cool club. Well, Sean, this should seal the deal. The further left, the cooler. You are so uber cool now, man. Very amusing.



  27. 27

    Re: marilow – Both McCain and Obama have made errors in judgment. But if you think that at this crucial point in US history, that a person with almost no experience is good, then by all means vote for Obama. And he promises to surround himself with the best. Yeah, his past would indicate that'll also be a problem. Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, Acorn people, etc., etc. No, he can't help his name but the reality is that this time, character doesn't count in the race and, also, he's a wolf in sheep's clothing. Trust me. We've been given 2 yuchhhy choices. One who is 8 years too late and the other 4 years too early.

    Wow how disturbing. Chavez is NOT good to his people! Does Penn think he is doing a good thing justbecause he hates Bush? GET OVER IT and VOTE because he will be out soon!!!!!!!!

    Re: mama of 2
    That's funny, they do make a cute couple.
    Re: LettyB
    Chavez took over Columbia and called Bush the Devil and that he can smell his sulfur from the Union Nation's Meeting. He also has
    Sean Penn and the dude from American Beauty down there alot
    for some ”'good feeling”' reason. He owns all of the oil that comes
    out of our ”citgo” gas stations, so don't buy his shit.



  30. 30

    Que asco, Chavez es un dictador… yo soy de venezuela y el solo aparenta trabajar por las personas cuando en realidad lo que ha hecho es empobrecernos!



  31. 31

    Re: marilow – Obama is the *least* qualified of the 4 running for pres/vp. Take it from me, a lifelong Democrat who could never vote for Obama, that smooth operator…the Repubs aren't smearing Obama. These are *truths*. Obama did, indeedy, get his start in politics in the home of unrepentant bomber Bill Ayers and continued to sit on Boards with him and give $$ to him. That's only for starters. And Bill Ayers (I don't give a crap if he's a college prof; even Nazis can do that!) wasn't just some footnote in history. He was an awful guy who married a fellow bomber, Bernardine Dohrn.

    Leave this left wing communist nut job with loony tune Chavez. The Hollywood morons are just showing the world how incredibly ignorant they are!



  34. 34

    what an ass hat



  35. 35

    it is so easy to come here (venezuela) ride around on jeeps with chavez while so many people are starving and there's so many lies and corruption in this government. sean penn obviously doesn't now the reality of this country…I don't blame him, Chavez is very persuasive and it's probably easy to believe him…

    by the way Perez..Chavez (thankfully) hasn't been able to put infinite re-election in the constitution yet…he has tried but hasn”t been succesful…



  36. 36

    traitor



  37. 37

    How is it that everyone is so closed minded regarding Chavez and his goal towards creating a society that is not based on capitalism? Is it soo terrible that he is trying to put the power of his nation back into the hands of his people, in particular those poverty stricken individuals who are typically left out of the decisions made here in our 'free' and 'democratic' North American nations?

    I suggest that all you critics start trying to get your facts from sources other than these right-wing, uninformed 'tyrants' such as Perez. American's don't like what Chavez is doing because he is putting his nation first, rather than handing is country over to the US for complete exploitation of there goods, such as oil.

    Thank you Sean Penn, for getting to the other side of this story, I just hope our North American society is intelligent enough to hear you out!



  38. 38

    Madonna was WAY too good for him.

    Sean Penn and Hugo sittin' up a tree-
    K.I.S.S.I.N.G. —!

    hope he gets comfy and stays there!



  41. 41

    Crime & corruption….sounds like America to me. Perez is just another part of the media machine…doing his best to keep people ignorant of the real truth.



  42. 42

    This asswipe should have stayed married to MANdonna, they deserve ech other, that way both of them could have gone to Venezuela and lick Chavez's smelly deceased ridden balls at the same time!



  43. 43

    "implementing a system riddled with crime and corruption and infinite re-election." SOUNDS LIKE MAYOR BLOOMBERG!!!

    Re: kt7280 – Why don't you go live there then among the "poor people" and stop bashing on America! I love how fucking Liberals always stand up for anyone that is trying to destroy America, your spoiled ass wouldn't last a week in a country like Venezuela or Cuba



  45. 45

    Re: SheriMoonZombie – thanks!



  46. 46

    Re: kt7280 – I don't believe I'm close minded for not liking a dictator. If you think his country is so great, go live there for a bit. I know quite a bit about him and he's no saint. Corruption and cronyism runs rampant in his administration. He's like Bush except on the other end of the spectrum. Both too extreme. I wouldn't want to live under his rule. Just like I don't like living under Bush's. Both can go to hell.



  47. 47

    Im from Venezuela and u WILL NEVER SEE ME PARADE WITH MY OWN COUNTRY's PRESIDENT!!! Only way is if its in his LIMO RIDE TO THE GRAVE SITE while there's million of peoples waiting on the side of the streets SPITTING AT HIS COFFIN!!!!!!!!!! ugh… These Americans are so freaking ignorant. Thats why I am in America and my family is stuck in Venezuela because our "wonderful" president doesn't give out Visa's anymore to travel for people between the ages of 10-45 (the age that most people leave to start a new life somewhere else). Unfortanately my country is COMMUNIST and it seems that this idiot DOESN't KNOW IT! Try driving on our road with holes everywhere. ugh….. Disgusted by this man and all the other actors that go to my country to praise Chavez!!!!!!!!



  48. 48

    So where do you get YOUR information? None of what you say is true. You are biased because he had dinner with Castro once. get over it.



  49. 49

    I hope this asswipe Penn stays there for good!! Its official..he's certifiably INSANE! What an IDIOT he is!!



  50. 50

    Nobody is using anybody here. Please Perez connect the dots, just do that. Castro is a communist, Chavez is his pupil, Sean's father (Leo Sean) was a radical communist that hated America, and his son is exactly the same. So it's perfectly normal that this assshole will visit Chavez…Exactly the same way Obama will visit him if he wins the presidency.-

    Sometimes Perez, the worst people are not criminals, they are stupid. I can't beleive that you will vote for Obama.-You are going to regreat that vote soooo much, it's even painful to imagine.-

    Communists and anti-americans scumps will find the way to get together.-



  51. 51

    this is such a delicate question-close the door on Chavez and isolate him when the people see him as their savior? It's hen the communication breaks down that it gets dangerous. Penn is on shaky ground and maybe he just wants to see for himself.Pending.

    I don't know if is Sean Penn
    is secretly gay,
    but he sure never met a DICKtater
    he did not love!!!



  56. 56

    Sean Penn should move to Cuba.
    Of course, if Obama wins,
    he can just stay here
    and it will feel like Cuba!

    Re: kt7280 – Like I said in my previous post… IGNORANT AMERICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think resorting to violence is the way to solve anything, but this is one jackass that I would love to see put in the hospital for a very long time…….or worse.

    Sean Penn has gotten knocked in the head one too many times. Talk about STUPID.



  60. 60

    God Almighty, how stupid can celebrities be? Sean Penn doesn't know shit from wild honey, and I know Naomi Campbell couldn't be far behind. Do they not know how stupid and gullible they appear?



  61. 61

    WHAT SYSTEM IS NOT riddled with crime and corruption and infinite re-election



  62. 62

    SEAN PENN WAS JUST AT CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY in Orange, Ca. I was eating in the cafeteria and he walked past with his daughter. Apparently she wants to go here. It was amazing :)



  63. 63

    Wish he'd go live there.

    Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey, and Naomi Campbell should go live there. Sean Penn ———-You are a trader to your own country. Why don't you get out of the United States if you don't like it here? We will help you pack.



  65. 65

    Chavez is my hero ! What do you know about him you cuban treator, you should have stayed in your country instead of going to the enemy who causes so much misery to the Cuban people. Now all of Latin America is waking up and the US won't be able to treat them badly as they have for too long. Viva Chavez and Sean Penn !



  66. 66

    Ok.. DUDE I live in Venezuela wich im very proud of.. but trust me that Tyrant As u called him perez well done by the way isnt doing anyyy good to my country.. the dumbass is just fucking things up, hes a looney!!! and hes taking my country to the lowest level everr… and Sean Penn.. dude i admire u as an actor cuz u truly are a great actor.. but hanging out with chavez isnt any good. well at least ur just trying to take money out of him haha cuz that would make sense.. but at the end is just sad … and i cant wait to be able to travel to the USA to become an actress haha !! :] and by the way.. OBAMA All the WaY!! :] fuck McCain and that bitch of Palin.. Good luck in ur elections!! And say NO to Prop 8 :]]

    Sean Penn is an idiot.

    End of story.



  69. 69

    I am 100 % for Obama, even when the Cubans here in Miami yell at me for wanting to be like Castro and redistribute the wealth (funny how a people fleeing totalitarianism become so…totalitarian). I am 100 % FOR redistributing some wealth (that's what states do, my friends.) I 100 % think the US has been a pernicious force in Latin America in the 20th century. And I'm 100% sick of the old parties and politicians in Latin America who don't give a shit about the poor and hardworking people of their countries.

    So, you'd think I'd like Chavez and think Penn is a hero.

    Wrong.

    It's not Chavez's economics that are so bad– I once heard him compare how much the US expected to pay for a barrel of oil from there. 4 x less than for an equivalent barrel of US-manufactured SHAMPOO. Nothing wrong with protecting the Venezuelans and making sure they profit from their oil. It's the man's politics that are terrible. Loco, corrupto, caviloso. And too often undermining of hard-won democracy. It's Democrazy!! (You must cite me on this. I made it up and will sue you for plagiarism if you try to take it.)

    You can fight imperialism while still remaining a democracy. There may not be many examples in Latin America yet, but let's keep trying.

    Oh, and Sean Penn. Sober up. Stop beating poor Robin Wright. And be a *true* independent thinker and real activist, not a dupe.

    Penn praising Chavez for the treatment of his people show's how clueless he is about politics. Stick to being a washed up actor no one cares about anymore, stay out of politics.



  73. 73

    Every time you pay for a movie ticket to watch this dope-headed idiot, you are paying his salary and allowing him to get richer and make trips like this to support the enemies of the US. It's okay to dislike the politicians but to support someone who is obviously a traitor and palling around with enemies of the State makes you an enemy supporter whether you know it or not.

    Fuck the both of them!! I can't say that Penn's a bad actor, ’cause he's not, but if he knew how Venezuelans really live, not the smoke curtain Chavez has showed him, he wouldn't be with him. Or not, who knows?
    Chavez is a mother***** who has brought Venezuela to ruin, everyday there are more crimes and the life's harder and harder. It's really ironic, isn't it? You would think that a country who earns billions of dollars of oil sale would be economically great, wouldn't you? But our reality is different, you can't go out without the fear of being robbed or worst being murdered. There are families who can't afford the basic aliments and the list of bad things goes on and on, all this while the president gives away the money, Venezuelans money.
    SO… VETE A LA MIERDA SEAN PENN POR JALABOLAS Y TU CHAVEZ POR SER UN HIJO DE PUTA CABRÓN!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: kt7280 – WORD!!

    Yes! I totally agree with you. Finally someone can make a statement without sending anyone to fuck themselves. You are completely right.

    I'm from Venezuela by the way. Chavez is no dictator, we're actually better than ever in every single aspect. It's funny how people speak without knowing about the subject.

    As for other venezuelans, well, everyone has an opinion that should be respected. Here, as well as there in the US, some people are democrats and others republicans. Some of you are against Chavez and some of us with him.

    Peace.



  78. 78

    Re: kt7280 – I wish you'd live here. This country is sinking in every way, and all is because of Chavez. Cleary you've bought every single lie Chavez has said, not even bothering to confirm if it's true. Our country could be one of the richest of the world, considering all off the oil we export, especially to you. So pleeaase at least Perez is telling the truth! YOUR source of information is really wrong…
    I'm only a teenager, and i've been trough many bad things that this dictator has brought to the country, like my dad -just like a thousand more people- loosing his job.
    I can¡t blame the celebrities that think Chavez good..because he IS good at brainwashing people.



  79. 79

    Americans, better get used to it: South America will not let you run their countries any more. Chavez set a good example for the others, he does what he wants at home and says "Yankees Go Home" As for the supposed Venezualans writing here, FAKE. It is about time Americans realized that their "empire" is crumbling and they will not dictate to the rest of the world. Hurry Chinese, take command of the world !



  80. 80

    Hi Perez !
    Soy venezolano y recientemente un seguidor tuyo, regularmente visito tu pagina y esta vez me veo involucrado en uno de tus posts… Sean en Venezuela, la primera vez que vino me sorprendió porque no imaginaba que chavez recibiera apoyo de alguna celebridad, en fin, chavez es un seudo-dictador que apoya infinita y devotamente a fidel castro, lamentablemente se ha mantenido en el gobierno de mi paìs y ha generado muchas desgracias, si bien es cierto que el odia a bush, es factible decir que entre esos ellos no hay diferencias, y Sean viene a Venezuela porque hay dinero de por medio, asi como Danny Glover consiguiò un presupuesto de millones de dolares para producir una pelicula, Sean seguro recibe algo para generar publicidad en las "obras " de chavez….



  81. 81

    What - Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey, and Naomi Campbell WEREN'T being used for political gain? Sean Penn is one more celebrity that no one should listen to when it comes to political matters.



  82. 82

    He's a filthy, multi-generational, Communist that is still pissed off because Joe McCarthy rightly pegged his parlour pinko poppa as a comrade. Sean Penn is a TRAITOR!



  83. 83

    THEY SHOULD ALL STAY THERE AND NEVER ALLOWED TO PUT ANOTHER FOOT IN THE U.S…..I LOVE IT HOW THEY'RE SUPPORTING A GUY WHO WAS FIDEL CASTRO'S PET PROJECT!!!! I don't think that it worked so great for the Cubans… do you think Venezuelan's story is going to better… Chavez should be shot….He's a piece of shit
